Brace yourself for weeks of misery as work has started on the central reservation on Clapham Road between Shakespeare Road and Great Ouse Way roundabouts.

As part of the works, a traffic lane is now closed in each direction between the roundabouts, which is leading to additional disruption.

Earlier today (Monday), a Bedford Borough Council tweet said: "We are keeping the traffic management under review and will make any changes that we can to try to reduce disruption in the area."

The works - which are expected to continue for several weeks - will provide additional lanes and traffic signal improvements to the junction with Sainsbury's.
